I've been jumping my mare, Sapphire (TB x) a lot lately, and where as she does enjoy it, I can sort of feel that she isn't getting as much enjoyment from it as she used to. She's only 5, 6 in August, and we've been jumping just from early January and we're clearing small jumps. I try to vary the fences and things and make different paths, but she's not changed. And besides hacking out, we only really jump. We gave dressage a go but no it doesn't agree with her and she was acting quite annoyed. I took her up to a cross country course yesterday and she seemed to enjoy that but we don't have too much of a wide access to cross country courses. So what can I do with jumping/in general with my mare to make riding a happier experience for her?
Thank you xx
